Thank you, thank you, thank you! This sounds like the recipe I’ve tried to find that seems to be hiding somewhere in this house! It worked every time, never failed, and tastes as good as any I’ve ever had.
(Better watch how I say that since we have a different microwave since the last batch we made!)
If you want to go really, really ridiculous, try it with cashews some time… 😉

Thanks Pete & brookdale. I have never thought to use cashews but I’m going to give that a try.
This recipe has always served me well, quick & easy. Absolutely delicious.
